You’d expect something this delicious would be hard to make, but it’s really not. Did I mention it only takes just over an hour to make?

Ingredients

  • 3 kg rolled beef roast

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme

  • 1 tablespoon crushed garlic

  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons barbecue spice

  • fresh thyme sprigs

  • fresh rosemary twigs

  • fresh black pepper (to taste)

  • 30 ml Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 100 ml warm water

Method

  • Make a rub of all the ingredients, except the fresh herbs and water. Rub the roast vigorously all over. Push the mixture into the openings of the rolled beef.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the beef in a roasting pan with a lid, and pour in the water and fresh herbs.
  • Place your roast in the oven, covered, for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the lid for the next 30 minutes. Cook the roast for longer depending on how you like your meat: rare, medium or well-done.
  • The sauce in the bottom of your roast pan makes a delicious gravy. Add gravy powder to thicken.
  • Place potatoes around your roast for the last 30 minutes.
